After a week of commenting, tagging and double tapping, the winners of the Southwestern College favorite professor Instagram giveaway have been selected! We offered students a chance to win one of two prize packs which included a $50 Amazon gift card and $50 worth of sweet gear from the Southwestern College Bookstore.

All students had to do was like a post on Instagram, follow Southwestern College, tag two friends and let us know their favorite professor at Southwestern College. The two winners were chosen completely at random using a random number generator. Comments were continuously selected until two students were chosen that fulfilled the giveaway criteria.
